Maybelline The Colossal Cat Eye's Mascara

Hi Ladies!!

I recently picked up one of Maybelline's newest addition to their mascara range, which is of course their The Colossal Cat Eye's Mascara.
I was intrigued to try it as I do actually like a lot of Maybelline's mascaras and was interested to see how this one was any different.

I really like the brush of this mascara, its curved but not too big, so its great for catching every lash.

I found this mascara great for lengthening and defining my lashes but it didnt really do much for adding volume or creating curl which is something that I am always looking for!!

Also, it didnt really add any great length to the outer few lashes as it kind of claims to do but I wasn't expecting it to really. I dont think any mascara could actually help with that.

I really like this mascara and i've been wearing it everyday at work without it smudging or flaking.

Its available now priced at £7.99 but currently its £2 off in Superdrug!!

Have you tried this yet?! What did you think of it?!

Loving My Lady Million

Hi Girlies!!

First of all I need to apologise for being a very bad blogger and not blogging for over a week!! I can't believe its been that long but honestly this whole having a full time job thing is seriously taking over my life. My days at the moment are pretty much, wake up, shower, work, eat, sleep and repeat.
I must get used to it soon, i've only done my first proper week this week so lets hope I settle in to it soon!!

Anyway, I was shopping with the bf recently and he treated us to some new smells :-)

He chose 1 Million by paco rabanne for himself and then very kindly bought me the female version, Lady Million.

I really like 1 Million and think that its the perfect smell for guys to wear. Its only an Eau De Toilette but the scent seems to last all day with only a couple of sprays. Its a gorgeous "man smell" and if you like your man to smell amazing, i'd definately recommend this!!

Lady Million is also gorgeous. Its become my most reached for perfume of the moment. I got the Eau De Parfum as I like my perfumes to last a little bit longer on the skin and find that Eau De Toilettes wear off quite quickly.

I love the packaging of this, an impressive golden diamond shaped bottle. Its inspiration was the famous Regent Diamond which is also known as the Millionaire Diamond, which resides in the Louvre!!

I got the 30ml bottle which means the whole top of the bottle lifts off to reveal the spray, however if you get the larger sizes, there is a spray mechanism on the top of the bottle like the mens which I personally prefer.

This perfume is ultra-feminine, glamorous, vibrant and sensual. The experts say that this has fresh top notes of bitter orange, fleshy raspberry and neroli, followed by floral notes of orange blossom and Arabian jasmine and base notes of patchouli, honey and amber.

I just think that its a gorgeous scent, perfect for the day time or for a night out. It seems to have been aimed to be more of a high end perfume and its definately one of my heavier kind of perfumes but I dont mind that as it lasts longer and means that I can still actually smell it throughout the day!!

Have you tried this before?! What do you think of it?!
